I am using WinEdt to write and compile Latex files. Often I do have several .tex files open and I would like to switch between tabs. E.g. On Google Chrome you can use CTRL+PgUp or CTRL+PgDown to havigate through tabs.

However, that does not work on WinEdt. Does anyone knows whether there is a shortcut or whether is it possible to setup one?

Thank you!

    Ctrl+Comma works too. You find the MDI-entries in the "Window" menu and you can adapt the shortcuts in menu.ini. Oct 21, 2015 at 17:17

Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab switches between "MDI"-windows (I never understood the order it uses), Ctrl+Comma and Ctrl+Shift+Comma between windows. You can adapt the shortcuts in menu.ini.
